Important Commencement/Reunion logistical information

As the University prepares for Commencement & Reunion Weekend, one of the signature events for our 125th Anniversary celebration, we would like to provide the campus community with a few important logistical updates.

Many events have been planned for our alumni, graduates, and their families throughout the weekend. In order to provide on-campus parking for our guests, we strongly encourage faculty, staff, and administrators to utilize off-campus parking. We ask that you park at the Target surface parking lot during peak activity times this weekend. Shuttles will run on Saturday from 4 p.m. – 1 a.m. and again on Sunday from 7 a.m. – 4 p.m.

With the Hamlin Quad being used as a central location for activities, Administration Drive will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning the morning of Friday, May 20 through the afternoon of Sunday, May 22.

The Dolan Science Center will also be closed on Saturday, May 21, from 5 – 11 p.m., in preparation for a fireworks display that evening.

Visit for more information, a full schedule of events and to RSVP for the Weekend’s events. We greatly appreciate everyone’s help with planning and executing this historic weekend. Your cooperation and flexibility will help to make this a wonderful weekend for our guests.
